Its time to buy new brass for my .44 mag. 1894. Is one brand better or is it what ever works best in your gun? All my loads have been developed using Remington cases but I don't mind doing it over again if there is a better brand. Thank you for any info.
I recently added to my brass inventory, but I wanted something with a different headstamp, so I tried some stuff Midway had called "Top Brass." Quality seems to be on a par with most others, and the price was right. I don't know who makes it, or where, but so far I'm right well pleased with it. I've used Remington brass since I started shooting 44's, and some lots have been a little soft. But the Starline stuff is also very good, and can be had at a reasonable price as well. Hope this helps, rather than just adding to the confusion, like I usually do! :roll:
One more thing about Starline brass....... You can order direct from Starline and IIRC the shipping is included and ends up being the best price.
Scharch sells their own label brass these days. I haven't tried this particular brass, but have bought from them in the past and they have superb customer service.
I have some old Midway stamped brass I ordered some 25 years ago and it is still going after all of these years. As long as you shoot reasonable loads and inspect the brass it will last quite a while.
